Honors 11: “Nature”, Thoreau’s Poetry and Fun

We first shared out our thoughts on “Nature” and how it aids in our understanding of transcendentalist ideas courtesy of the “father of transcendentalism,” Emerson. We then wrote out a claim on the poem handout that worked to indicate similarities or exemptions of an aspect of Emerson’s essay chapters and one of Thoreau’s three poems. You then submitted your poems with the claim for grading.

We then did our “World’s Worst Gift Exchange.” Great job, people! Enjoy your break 🙂

Don’t forget to read/lightly annotate/highlight key lines of Emerson’s “On the American Scholar” for our first day back.

Here’s the transcendentalism scavenger hunt due Jan. 11th that I talked about today.
